Five for Friday

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching this week for Five For Friday! 

The bulletin board outside my classroom. 
Not sure how long it will stay up, but it's nice to have something!
When I'm tired of this, I think I'd like a BRAG BOARD!

Last week, I talked about how I had signed up for the Global Read Aloud! The Global Read Aloudstarts in October. Basically, you're paired up with another class to video chat with about the books assigned. This year it's a Peter Reynolds author study, so it will be GREAT for second grade!

Welp, I have a match! I am paired up with another second grade from Canada! 

Click the link to find out more! I heard about it from a friend at school, and I really am glad that I did!

So, I also talked last week about how I'm trying SLANTBOX for the first time! Fellow blogger over at Lessons with Coffee sets it up each month. I was paired up with two teachers. One is Carrie who blogs on Follow First Grade  and Krisanna who recently started the blog Simply Secondary

I am sending my package out to Krisanna TODAY!!! And I am SOOOO excited to receive some hometown love from Carrie! Carrie has given me some great advice, since she has taught in second grade before and I'll be teaching in second grade this year! And Krisanna...her classroom and blog are so bright and motivating, something that is sometimes unexpected at the high school level. It's been fun!

TpT is having a BACK TO SCHOOL BOOST SALE on August 20. My entire store will be 20% off. And just for fun...I am having a mini sale today and tomorrow, 10% off. Enjoy!

After a week of curriculum writing and staring at a computer screen, it's nice to spend some time with this cutie!

  1. I have been wanting to sign up for SLANTbox. It sounds so fun! I didn't know about the TPT Boost Sale, thanks for the heads up. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
